entourage

I'll admit to a tiny bit of schadenfreude on reading that Adrian Grenier's show on that dumb new cable channel sounds like a disaster.

I was totally shocked, after watching a season or two of Entourage, to learn that some people *like* Vincent Chase. I thought one of the things that made the show so great is that its central character is an unlikeable man-child and complete tool who manipulates his buddies into arranging their lives to his personal benefit. Anyone?

(Yeah, I know, the actor and the character are different people, but I dislike the character so heartily that it overflows a little to the actor.)

Are there any likable characters on Entourage? I find that show kind of intolerable. Is this how men feel about Sex and the City?

I kind of love everybody except for Vince.

I didn't find Vincent too bad, at least for the few shows I saw. My interpretation was that this man-child somehow struck it big, and his friends were hangers-on that wanted to benefit from their association with a celebrity...

Wasn't Adrian Grenier in a TV show or movie starring the girl from that Teenage Witch show? Really specific, I know.
